Working with 3D Slabs and Solids in Chief Architect Designers Show #58

designers show Aug 23, 2021

Chief Architect keeps improving its 3D capabilities, especially how we can work with our own custom 3D Slabs. They have added some push/pull capability that works well. Join us as we discuss some of these capabilities in Chief X13.

In this show, John and I will discuss the 3D Slab and Solid tools and ways you can use these tools in Chief to enhance your 3D models. The information you'll get in this show will save you a lot of time when you are working on your model, and you will get a better understanding of how the 3D CAD tools in Chief work.
